Soaking in the Rain

07 Feb

I’ve seen a lot of these ‘manners’ posters around the area and finally manage to capture one with my camera. The posters talk about cigarettes, littering and even stuff like putting on make-up in the train. My favorite one says shows pictures of a man on the subway seat with his newspaper spread out, taking up three seats instead of one; next to him is a woman and another man who look sad. There is some English on the sign, but I don’t remember what it says exactly.

I talked to people about what’s considered manners, and here’s what a person said.

I saw a mother with her child on the subway, and the child was standing in front of the door. The mother told her child to move, not because she was inconveniencing other people by standing in front of the doors, but because she might get hurt. This is why young Japanese have no manners.

As far as I know, they haven’t traveled abroad…
